Bottle. Pours gold with a slight white head. Some loose lacing. Light citrus and pine aromas. Sticky sweet taste with bits of pine and orange zest. Not bad, easy drinking for a DIPA. Nothing spectacular. Could use a more well-rounded hop bill. Some tropical fruits would go a long way here. alexsdad06 (11557) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma has earthy, resiny and mild citrus hops with some caramel and mild fruit notes. The flavor is similar; resin and dank hops, mild citrus, toasted malts with a splash of caramel and a touch of fruit. Decent, but something kept it from being a standout. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is orange, some caramel, some light red and white grapefruit followed by some mild floral hops. Flavor starts with mild caramel and goes quickly to citrus explosion with white and red grapefruit coming into the mix. Light to medium in body with some mild booze toward the end.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2015 Lovely DIPA, bottle from Capone’s. Orange bodied. Smooth, above average mouthfeel. Rich, complex, lots of fruit. Very hoppy aroma. Had 2.5 years later and just hits the style. elgiacomo (746) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2013
12oz bottled January 2013. Served at around 45F.

Pours hazy dark orange witha two finger white head that leaves impressive drippy rings of lacing and holds a good cap.
Aroma is orange, tangerine, floral hops, some pine, some apricot, decent bit of caramel malt. Good to very good strength but might be a touch past its prime.
Flavor is more orange and tangerine, fruity hops, moderate caramel malt in the middle with some sweetness, decent, but not great bitterness on the finish and mild to moderate alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation.
Pretty good DIPA. Don’t think I’m trying this at its best, would love a fresher sample, but good none-the-less.
Bottle. Cheers to Adam for the generous pour. The appearance is deep orange with a tiny head. The nose is strong pacific citrus hops. Some general grapefruit and orange. A bit of sweet captain crunch cereal and honeyed bread. The taste is more citrus fruits. Grapefruit. Some menthol cigarette. Grass finish. Pretty chunky malt profile. A bit syrupy. Some caramel. Heavy body. Fine carbonation. Overall, decent. Sort of flabby. jonas (8625) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - APR 14, 2013
Nice full citrus aroma, orangepeel, lime.
Cloudy amber, lacing head.
Mellow, light oily mouthfeel. Medium resinny hops, ok balance for a dipa, nice citruspeel aftertaste.

Pretty well balanced, though leaning more to the heavy caramel malt side. A tad sweet, lots of tropical fruit. Quite roguish. TimE (6402) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 12, 2013
Tons of crystal malt in the backbone. Aggressive hop presence in the mouth. Well defined apples and oranges in the nose with some malty sweetness. Very well balanced. Big bitterness in the mouth through the finish. Heavy and balanced. Malt accented, very enjoyable IIPA. 50belair (3718) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
Clear yellow pour with a white head. Florally hop aromas. Light in the body with big florally hop notes. Good mouthfeel and balance..
